Just in Time (2021)
Sarah Hassan plays a young woman who has nothing to show for the last seven years of her life after the bookstore where she works is suddenly closed down.
She dreams of going on a holiday to Zanzibar, but before she can make her dream come true, she finds out that she is solely responsible for her cousin’s witty, lively 11-year-old daughter.
Now her whole life has changed – and though none of this was in her plan, maybe things are about to change for the better.
